Orange County Playground Map

This park map of Orange County is a work in progress with new locations added weekly. All markers link back narrative and photos of the playgrounds, parks, beaches, and splash parks (light blue). Just click on the title in the marker bubble to link to more info.

You can also use the map to pair up park trips with trips to the Farmer’s Market (yellow) or public library (white).

EXCITING NEWS! Your beloved OC Playground Map needed an update [So we are waving a sad goodbye to an old friend]. I waited until after summer and before the holidays to get to work! Most posts still have the address listed, so you should still be able to find where you need to go. However, if you can be kind and patient with me — I’ll make sure you find all those locations back better than ever very soon!
